A good solid game was played in perfect conditions by two teams who both had a good mix of youth and experience. The final score was not assured until the final quarter. The first half saw both sides score in a ding dong battle with Wharfedale just edging ahead 26-19 on the stroke of half time.
Both sides had a good supply of substitutes and all got some good game time with rolling replacements. Wharfedale now playing down the slope, began to gain the upper hand and gradually built up a lead. As Keighley tired, Wharfedale sealed the game with some good late scores.
Wharfedale scorers: –
Tries – P Cockcroft (2), R Aldersley (2), T Oakes, B Viner, M Tywang, J Davies.
Conversions – J Davies (5).
